The friends and associates of the late Professor 
William H. Xilcs will be interested to know that al- 
though his scientific collections were destroyed in the 
College Hall fire, no portion of the Niles Memorial 
Fund has been expended. The entire amount re- 
ceived has been invested in such a way that on July 
1, 1015. the value will be as follows: One #1,000 4 
per cent. Telephone and Telegraph Bond and 
$203.27 deposited in the Savings Department ol 
the Wellesley National Bank. 

Vccording to the printed circular the Fund is to 
be applied "first, to establish and maintain, at 
Wellesle) College, a much needed departmental 
library in geology and geography, to be known as 
the 'Niles Memorial Library;' and I. Her, perhaps, 
should 01 1 asion warrant, to pro\ idc for lectureships 
and research .it Wellesley College, according to the 
m id nl the times." 

In 1 bnsideration of the lossol the personal proper- 
ty ol Professor Xilcs, it is much to be desired thai 

the fund be increased in order thai it may be a 
more suitable memorial to him. The fund will be 
turned over to the Trustees of Wellesley College 
on Tills 1, nits, and will be manipulated bj them 
on the recommendation of the President ol the 
College and the Professors ol Geologj [Geog- 

Professor William Harmon Niles was For twenty- 
six years connected with Welleslej < ollege. During 
his service, at first as lecturer and afterward as 
head of the Department of Geolog) . Professor Niles

minds of students and in evoking I heir enthusiasm.

gifts, all of which are deeply appreciated, are two 
especially noteworthy mineral collections. 

The first is the Horace I. Johnson Collection, — 
the gift of Mr. John Merlon of Calumet, Michigan, 
through the courtesy of Miss M. Helen Merton and 
the ( lassofl9l5. It is a noted systematic collection 

taining five thousand of the rarest and most 

beautiful mineral species, and valued at $11,000. 
To this collection Mr. Merton has added many rare

Preliminary Report— Ambulance No. 124 (Mil- 
itary No. 22091 ), Wellesley College. Attached 
Squad M. Section Z, with Seventh Army. 

Professor Hart has received from A. Pratt An- 
drew, Esq., Inspector of the American Ambulances 
in Paris, the following report of the work of the 
Wellesley Ambulance, the money for which was 
contributed by Faculty, Alumna?, students and one 

side friend, Mrs. Towlc of Andover, who gave 

the nucleus of two hundred and fifty dollars, which 
started the fund. 

"The chassis arrived at le Havre in a consign- 
meiil of several lor the American Ambulance, 
was assembled on the dock l>y a squad of the volun- 
teer drivers who had gone down from Paris for the 
purpose, and driven back in convoy. For a fort- 
nighl it was used in Ncuillv for errand work, driving 
lessons and the like, having only wooden seats 
Bolted to the frame. Then one of the new Kelsch 
bodies, the result— in its modified details of con- 
struction and equipment— of several months of 
observation in service, was mounted, and togethei 
with four other similar cars it was driven forty 
kilometers eastward to the American Hospital

The cars reached Juillj on 1 he fust ol April. 1'M.S. 
and on all of the following day they received theii 
equipment of spare tires and tubes, gasoline and 
oil reserves, tools, rations, and first-aid packages. 
I In new section was organized under the leadership 
ol Richard Lawrence, who had served in the North 
... squ.ul director al Meville, near Arras, before 
taking charge of the Juilly section. The five new 
ambulances were placed in Squad M, under Dallas 
1). I.. McGrew, who had been a squad director in 
I he section then at Beauvais, and who is now the 
driver of the Wellesley car. The other five-car 
squad, F, was organized of men, who were already in 
I lie Juilly unit and Lovering Hill, who had been at 
Meville with Lawrence, was put in charge. With 
few exceptions, all of the fourteen men in the section 
were I larvard men. 

The section left Juilly on the morning of April 3, 
and proceeded, always following the French mili- 
tary road-law of convoy, up the Marne valley, 
through Meaux, Vitry, Chalous, Bar-le-duc (where 
a stop was made lor the night), Domremy, where 
leanne d'Arc saw her visions, Condrccoai t, Neuf- 
chateau and Contrexev ille to Vittel, the watering 
place in which the headquarters of the director of 
automobile service for the East has been established. 
There the car was housed in a garage and the 
men lodged in a hotel. The following day Xo. 124 
saw its first real service, taking part in the evacua- 
tion of a train-load of wounded to the hospital thai

ambulances carried fifty-three men from the trail!

A Letter to Wellesley from Miss Balch. 
May 17, 1915. 
The day when you were giving me a parting 
greeting seems much more than a month ago. 
I fully expected to be back in America on the very 
day on which I am writing here in Holland. As I 
cannot report in person I will do as well as I can 
in writing. 

And first: the Congress has been a great success, 
something that everyone who took part in it must 
feel to have been worth all that it cost and more. 
Secondly: we all see that it is only a small part 
of a great piece of work, of long, serious, enthusiastic 
effort, in every country and right along, to create 
and make more general the state of mind which 
Miss Addams in her presidential address described 
as "that spiritual internationalism which surrounds 
and completes our national life as our national life 
itself surrounds and completes our family life." 
This state of mind does not desire to see one's 
own people profit at the expense of other peoples, 
and replaces racial prejudices and national jealousies 
by good-will and mutual understanding. This at- 
titude will express itself in opposition to armaments 
by land or sea, and in a patient willingness to wait 
for the righting of wrongs by peaceful and just 

The whole experience of attending the Congress 
has been an interesting one. Sunny weather and 
a boat steadied by a heavy load of grain made it 
possible for the forty-two American delegates on 
board the Noordam to meet to study and deliber- 
ate together during all the voyage. Mr. Louis 
Lockner, the organizer of a federation of students 
of all nationalities, and Secretary of the Chicago 
Peace Society, who had come with Miss Jane 
Addams to give secretarial and other help, first 
gave us a little course of lectures on Peace ques- 
tions, and after these we set seriously about the 
consideration of the preliminary program sub- 
mitted to us by the Committee at The Hague, 
who were arranging the Congress. Mr. and Mrs. 
Pethick Lawrence, who were with us, Miss Brek- 
hinridge, once of Wellesley, now of Hull House and 
the University of Chicago, Miss Grace Abbott, 
Mrs. Glendower Evans of Boston, Mrs. Louis F. 
Post of Washington and others beside Miss Addams 
herself were active in the often eager and long 
debates. Some days we met morning, afternoon 
and evening in order to push the business through. 
We added considerably to the program sent us and 
always in a constructive sense. 

We recommended the so-called "Wisconsin Plan" 
for continuous mediation without waiting for the 
belligerents to stop fighting. This plan, originated 
by a Miss Wales, an instructor in the English De- 
partment at the University of Wisconsin, was of- 
ficially endorsed and recommended to Congress by 
the Wisconsin State Legislature and was also 
adopted by the Fmergency Federation of Race 
Societies held in Chicago in March and everywhere 
excites the greatest interest. 

When we reached The Hague — to anticipate a 
little, — a preliminary program and rules of order 
had been adopted such that it promised to be very 
difficult to get in any new matter. We felt that 

this program was rather flat and timid, with too 
much of generalities and too much stress on suffrage, 
ami we felt that it would be a great disappointment 
if we did not get the Congress to adopt some of 
the planks that we had elaborated with such care. 
We were therefore very happy (and most of all, 
Mis:- Wales herself, who was with us) to succeed 
in getting adopted the following resolution embody- 
ing her plan. 

"4. Continuous Mediation. 

"This International Congress of Women 
resolves to ask the neutral countries to take 
immediate steps to create a conference "l 
neutral nations which shall without delay 
offer continuous medial ion. The Conference 
shall invite suggestions for settlement from 
each of the belligerent nations anil in any 
case shall submit to all of them simultane- 
ously, reasonable proposals as a basi ol 
Another of our planks was one aimed at so-called 
"peaceful penetration:" 

"b. Inasmuch as the investment by capital- 
ists of one country in the resources of an- 
other and the claims arising therefrom are 
a fertile source of international complica- 
tions, this International Congress of Women 
urges the widest possible acceptance of the 
principle that such investments shall lie 
made at the risk of the investor, without 
claim to the official protection of his govern- 
Another plank, aimed at internationalizing the 
control of the seas, read as follows in our version: 
"This Congress further recommends the 
abolition of all preferential tariffs and the 
neutralization of the seas and of such mari- 
time trade routes as the Panama Canal, the 
British Channel, the Dardanelles, the Suez 
and Kiel Canals, the Straits of Gibraltar, 
and so forth." 
This resolution we succeeded in inserting in the 
final program only in the somewhat emasculated 
form that follows: 

"a. The International Congress of Women 
urges that in all countries there shall be liberty of 
commerce, that the seas shall be free and the trade 
routes open on equal terms to the shipping of all 

Another of our planks that modified the original 
draft was that on Education for the Promotion of 
Peace. Just by sheer pressure on the time of the 
Congress it was impracticable to urge this amend- 
ment, and the version adopted remained as follows: 
"V. The Education of Children. 

1 ft. This International Congress of Women 
urges the necessity of so directing the edu- 
cation of children that their thoughts and 
desires may be directed towards the ideal 
of constructive peace." 

We had just succeeded in working out our pro- 
posals by the time we sighted land, and it was well 
that we had done so, for though we were on the 
Noordam for five days longer we were hardly placid 
enough to work to advantage. The first excite- 
ment was being slopped one evening under the 
menace of a little machine gun, trained full upon 
us by a 1 mat alongside, while two German stowaways 
wire taken off and searched and carried away. If 
the proceeding had been staged for dramatic pur- 
poses it could not have been more effective. One 
prisoner, with a rope about him to prevent his es- 
caping or falling overboard, shouted "Hoch der 
Kaiser! Deutschland fiber Alles!" before going 
over the ship's side and down the swinging ladder; 
then an English officer followed with a big package 
of important looking papers. The two prisoners. 
holding their hands up, were searched in front of 
that ever pointing little gun; very decent looking 
men they were. Then they went below and we 
wen- glad lo " blankets and what appeared to be 
two cups of hot coffee supplied to them. All this 
tookplaceon the deck of the little vessel just below 
us as we hung over the ship's rail, and lighted by 
the various lanterns of the boats. Every now and 
then out of the darkness a new vessel would draw 
up to us; at one time live lay alongside. Then all 
in silence they faded off again. 

At last we were allowed to proceed, but not tor 
long. Next morning, not far from Dover, we were 
stopped again, and there at anchor in the Downs 
we were held motionless for four mortal days, al- 
most like prisoners of war. We chafed and fretted 
and telegraphed and brought to bear all the in- 
fluence that we could command — and Miss Addams 
and Miss Breckinridge could command a great 
deal — but there we stuck, not allowed to land nor 
to have anyone come aboard to us, and for all of 
one day— Sunday— with no chance even to send 
or receive a message. The ship's wireless even was 
dismantled. We did, however, now get newspapers 
willi the first news of tHe war that we had nad since 

leaving New York 

The old song says "AH in the Downs our fleet . 
was moored," and so it was, and so were we and 
many others. Around us were vessels of every sort, 
Norwegian, Greek, Spanish and plain "United 
States," all with immense flags painted on their 
sides. Dispatch boats, torpedo boats and torpedo 
boat destroyers rushed past, often five in a string; 
a silver glistening dirigible like a great fish in the 
air was visible all one lovely afternoon, prcbably 
scouting for submarines. Once we saw vessels firing, 
probably shooting mines. In shore gleamed the 
white and green of the chalk cliffs, and a cosy old 
windmill turned its leisurely arms. 

It was pretty, it was interesting; but as the days 
slipped by and the date of the Congress drew near 
and people talked of possible weeks of delay, it 
grew harder and harder to bear. At last, twenty 
minutes after getting a telegram from Ambassador 
Page, a personal friend of Miss Addams, saying that 
he could do nothing to help us, we were released as 
mysteriously as we had been stopped; and by the 
next afternoon, Tuesday, we were landing in Rot- 
terdam. The first session of the Congress was 
scheduled for eight that evening, at The Hague. 
We got through the formalities of passports and 
customs, took train to the capital city (only half 
an hour away), were assigned to hotels by a friend- 
ly Dutch committee of hospitality, washed and 
dined (more or less) and were on the spot in time, 
after all. 

Not so the English delegation, one hundred and 
eighty of them, a notable group of women, many 
of them highly distinguished. The government had

granted passports to only twenty of them, and in 
the end not one of these could leave England, all 
traffic with Holland having been stopped for the 
time. Happily two of the English women, Miss 
Macmillan and Miss Courtney, had already gone to 
The Hague earlier, and they did yeoman service the (".ingress. From France no woman 
could or would come, from Russia and Servia none, 
and Japan quite naturally none. From the other 
great belligerent nations on the other side Germany 
sent a splendid contingent of twenty-eight, Austria 
six, and Hungary ten, forty-four in all. From 
Belgium five women came a day after the Congress 
had opened. They were given an ovation and one 
of the German members of the presiding committee 
moved that they all be invited In a seat on the plat- 
form, and this was done. Among the neutral na- 
tions the Dutch were naturally most largely rep- 
resented with about eleven hundred. The next 
largest group was the Americans with nearly fifty, 
for some had gone over earlier than Miss Iddams' 
parte on the Xoordam. Norway, Sweden and 
Denmark were well represented with, respectively 
twelve, sixteen and six each. 

The Congress was too large for any of the rooms 
at the Peace Palace or even for the famous Ridder- 
zaal, where the Queen opens Parliament, and met 
in a great hall in a park. In general the mornings 
were given to business and the evenings to public 
addresses, while it was planned to leave the after- 
free foi committee meetings and, for those 
not so occupied, for seeing sights and making ac- 
quaintance. One afternoon most .,1" us were so 
luckj as to si .- ili. famou fii Id oi tulips. But 
there proved n. 1'.' much to do and in spile of mak- 
ing ver\ good progress at each meeting we had to 
a. 1.1 two extra busine e ions, in i e every- 
thing took much longer from having to be trans- 
lated, generally twice. 

What stands out most strongly among all my 
impressions of those -trained and thrilling days is 
n ;e of the wonder of the beautiful spirit of the 
brave, self-controlled women who dared ridicule 
and every sort of opposition and difficulty to come 
and express their passionate human sympathy, no! 
in. on i i. ni with patriotism, but including and 
transcending it. Not one clash or even danger of a 
.lash over national different es OCi urrcl. I In every 
hand was the same thrilling sense of the growth of a 
new moral spirit and emotion, growing under all 
this conflict as the roots of the winter wheat grow 
under the drifts and storms. 

'I he program and rules of order agreed to shut 
out, from the first, all discusssion of national respon- 
sibility for the present war and of the conduct of it, 
and also all discussion of the rules under which 
war shall in future be carried on. We me1 on the 
common ground beyond such disputes, the ground 
of preparation for permanent peaci . 

Because there were no clashes along national 
lines it must not be thought that the Congre 
stagnantly placid. There were most vigorous dif- 
ferences of opinion over resolutions and some ener- 
getic misunderstandings, for which differences of 
language and parliamentary usage gave every op- 
portunity. I ine's every faculty was on the streti h 
hour after hour, and afterwards we wondered why 
we felt so exhausted. 

The two fundamental planks of the Congress, 
adherence to which was a condition of membership, 
were : 

a. That international disputes should be 
settled by pai ific means; 

b. That the parliamentary franchise should 
be extended to women. 

This meant a very substantial unity of opinion 

which greatly facilitated the discusi ion and 1 think 

that this is perhaps a suffii ienl ju tift ation of the

but in some of the Southern states, of making this

f.-H that the suffrage element was overstres ed on 
the Resolutions; but after all, it was the question 
of peace that out and out dominated H..' discus- 
ion .md focussed purpose and interest. Ye1 
though suffrage was hardly discus ed, I hear that 

many Dutch ladle, who were opi d to suffrage 

came away from the Congress meetings convinced 
that for women t.. ,1,. anything effective for Peace 
they must have a voice in public affaiers. 

I have spoken of the impression made on us by 
the friendliness of the women from the warring 
countries. Perhaps the next mosl powerful im- 
pre s.n. were, first, the closer sense of the tragic 
horror of the war, of which some of the women bore 
the imprint in their verj face-, nol to speak of w lui 
they .aid; and, secondly, the . ir . of the fear of 
the women ..f the neutral countries lesl they to.. 
I..- dragged into the pit where the other nations are 
Struggling. It was pitiful. 'I he women who have 
the vote (that is, the Norwegian and Danish, for 
the Finnish eoul.l not get to The Hague) showed an 
additional timidity,— the timidity of those who are 
in a critical and delicate situation, and who, being 
themselves jointly responsible, have to lake every 
step witli the greati St .are. 

Nevertheless the Congress did take very ad- 
vanced ground, i if course it advocated disarma- 
ment ami no private profits from munitions. [1 
laid down five principles which it conceives to be 
. ary to a lasting peace. This part of the reso- 
lutions is so important and so interesting licit l 
give it in full; 

"( '.oncral Disarmament. 

The International Congress of Women, 
advocating universal disarmament and real- 
izing that it can onlj bi ecured by inter- 
national agreement, urges, as a step to this 
end, that all countries should, by such an 
international agreement, take over the manu- 
facture of arms and munitions of war and

should control all international traffic in the 
line I: e. m the private profits accru- 
ing from the great armament factories a 
powerful hindrance to the abolition of war." 
"Action Towards Peace. 
The Peace Settlement. 

This International Congress of Women of 
differeni nations, .lasses, creeds and parties, 
is united in expressing sympathy with the 
suffering of all, whatever their nationality, 
who are lighting for their country or labor- 
ing under the burden of war. 

Since the mass of the people in each of the 
countries now af war believe themselves to 
be lighting not as aggressors, but in selt- 
defence and for their national existence, 
there can be no irreconcilable differences 
bi tw. en them, and their common ideals af- 
ford a basis upon which a magnanimous and 
honourable peacemight be established. The 
Congress therefore urges the Covernments 
of the world to [iitt an end to this bloodshed, 
and to begin peace negotiations. It demands 
that the peace which follows shall be perma- 
nent and therefore based on principles of

justice, including those laid down in the reso- 
lutions adopted by this Congress, namely: 

1. That no territory should be transferred 
without the consent of the men and women 
in it, and that the right of conquest should 
not be recognized. 

2. That autonomy and a democratic parlia- 
ment should not be refused to any people. 

3. That the Governments of all nations 
should come to an agreement to refer future 
international disputes to arbitration or con- 
ciliation and to bring social, moral and eco- 
nomic pressure to bear upon any country 
which resorts to arms. 

4. That foreign politics should be subject to 
democratic control. 

5. That women should be granted equal po- 
litical rights with men." 

Not content with this, we formulated our ideas 
of how international organization should be planned, 
in a general way. These provisions, too, must be 
quoted in full to be intelligible: 
"International Co-operation. 
Third Hague Conference. 

This International Congress of Women 
urges that a third Hague Conference be con- 
vened immediately after the war." 
"International Organization. 

This International Congress of Women 
urges that the organization of the Society 
of Nations should be further developed on 
the basis of a constructive peace, and thai 
it should include: 

a. As a development of The Hague Court of 
Arbitration, a permanent International Court 
of Justice to settle questions or differences 
of a justifiable character, such as arise on the 
interpretation of treaty rights or of the law 
of nations. 

b. As a development of the constructive 
work of The Hague Conference, a permanent 
International Conference holding regular 
meetings in which women should take part, , 
to deal not with the rules of warfare but with 
practical proposals for further Internation- 
al Co-operation among the States. This 
Conference should be so constituted that it 
could formulate and enforce those principles 
of justice, equity and good-will in accord- 
ance with which the struggles of subject 
communities could be more fully recognized 
and the interests and rights not only of the 
great Powers and small nations, but also 
those of weaker countries and primitive 
peoples, gradually adjusted under an en- 
lightened international public opinion. 

This International Conference shall ap- 
point a permanent Council of Concilia- 
tion and Investigation for the settlement of 
international differences arising from econom- 
ic competition, expanding commerce, in- 
creasing population, and changes in social 
and political standards." 
The evening sessions were in general less interest- 
ing to me than the business sessions. We had, how- 
ever, two pieces of really eloquent oratory, one from 
Mrs. Pethick Lawrence, one from Madame Schwim- 
mer. Miss Addams, who had managed the most 
difficult meetings in a most wonderful way, bring- 
ing harmony out of chaos by the white magic that 
she knows how to command, gave her presidential 
address the last evening. There was no oratory, 
no self-consciousness; every syllable could be heard, 
yet there was no sense of effort, — her voice seemed 
as sweet and low and rich as in common talk. Yet 
every one was, I think, lifted wholly out of herself. 
It was serene and comforting, yet challenging and 
moving — a worthy close to what has been to so 
many perhaps the greatest experience of their lives. 
I heard to-night that one of those who attended 
the Congress was a young Dutch lady recently 
married to a German officer. He has been at the 
front for some months; now since her return from 

The Hague, comes news of his death (with that of 
53,000 others) before Ypres. She cannot rejoice 
in his Heldentolt, as do his German relatives. She 
is heartbroken, and the only thing that gives her 
any comfort and sustains her is what she found at 
the Congress meetings. 

One of the most warmly debated questions at the 
last extra session after Miss Addams' speech, was 
Madame Schwimmer's proposal to send delegates 
to the different national capitals, both bellig- 
erent and neutral, to carry to them personally, the 
resolutions voted by the Congress. It was decided 
to do this, and Miss Addams and one delegation 
have just returned from most interesting and prom- 
ising interviews with Sir Edward Grey and Asquith. 
They start day after to-morrow. for Germany, where 
arrangements are made for very important inter- 
views as to which I have to be discreet as \ et . After 
this they hope to go to Vienna, Berne, Koine. Pans. 
Havre (the present Belgium capital) and possibly 

I was slated to go with others to Copenhagen, 
Stockholm, and Christiania, and 1 was very happy 
when President Pendleton cabled to me that it 
would do for me to stay on for this. 

Some of us made some preliminary calls on cer- 
tain ol the foreign ministers at The Hague, last 
Monday, and some of the things that were said to 
us were very illuminating and interesting. For 
instance, one of them, while thinking we were noble, 
and all that sort of thing, greatly deprecated all 
general peace talk, as it lessens the zeal for fighting 
in time of war. Futile as talk seems, the way thai 
it is dreaded shows that it does have its die, 1. 
Ideas seem so unreal and so powerless in the face 
of the vast physical force massed to-day for mili- 
tary ends; it is easy to forget that it is only ideas 
that created that force and that keep it in action. 
Once war is disbelieved in, the force melts into 

Another interesting thing said to us by one of the 
foreign ministers at The Hague was that the most 
important thing that we could possibly do was to 
educate children away from militarism. I com- 
mend this to the consideration of those planning to 

It has, in fact, been a surprise to me to see how- 
much this innocent unofficial gathering has been 
regarded. I imagined that it was likely to be simply 
ignored. On the contrary it gives considerable un- 
easiness, and I believe also considerable comfort to 
various belligerent governments, and the great 
news agencies find it worth while to invent various 
false reports. German papers report that it broke 
up in a row. English papers say it was captured 
by the Germans and used to promote their ends. It 
is insinuated that people were paid to come, etc. 
The more bellicose English papers have been as 
disagreeable as they could be about what they call 
the "Peacettes." We hear that in Germany those 
who dare to come will be boycotted by other women, 
but I do not believe that will prove to amount to 

In America, especially in states where suffrage is 
a campaign issue, I suppose it will not be surpris- 
ing if the suffrage aspect of the Congress, subordi- 
nate as it was, were made the most of, and if the 
Congress were misrepresented on that account. But 
it may be that I am too pessimistic and that it will 
get more favorable publicity and more adequate 
than I fear. Most of the regular line of reporters 
at the meetings were merely on the qui vive for 
quarrels and found the whole thing very dull with- 
out them. It was astonishing what microscopic 
points could be worked up into more or less serious 
" incidents." 

One of the interesting sides of the coming over 
has been the opportunity to hear more about how- 
things are going. I have been seeing Dr. Hedger, 
once a Wellesley student, who has just returned 
from six months of fighting typhoid in Belgium. 
She talks very quietly but it is a bad, bad business. 
The poor Belgians are so hoping that the Germans

m.i\ leave the countrj peacefully as the result of 
an agreement and not be forced back fighting ovi r 
hi ground again. Bui the mosl interesting thing 
of all is the stories of anti-war feeling anion 
soldiers, themselves; people tell of German soldiers 
saying as thej leave home, "I may be shot myself 
l,ui [ will not shoot anyone." Manj are said to 
commit suicide to avoid having to kill. I have been 
reading extracts from the most extraordinary and 
moving outpourings in German letters from a sol- 
dier in the trenches, expressing his horror at the 
barbarity of what he is involved in, ami hi ironic 
contempt of the attempt to represent it as ideal 
and heroic. Our delegates who came across Ger- 
many would be taken into safe corners by conduc- 
tors and other people who would whisper to them, 
begging them to "make peace." 

On the other hand one hears of the extraordinary 
exalte patriotism, of champagne suppers given to 
celebrate the heroic death of a son, and parents 
printing in the papers " 1 have the happiness to an- 
nounce the death of a third son killed in fighting 
for his country." It is to me so inexpressibly piti- 
ful, so courageous, in a sense noble, but so horribly 
distorted and so unnecessary. 

One thing that interested me very much was a 
German society that has been started in Berlin, 
Bund Neues Vaterland, to cultivate the new hu- 
mane spirit which is the highest type of patriotism. 
It is encouraging, too, to find the German press 
beginning to put out anti-militarist literature, at 
least some of it. 

The Dutch bookstores and toy shops are an in- 
teresting study. There is a profusion of war toys and 
and war books, but with the latter, a great many 
anti-war books and cartoons. Some of the latter, 
terrible as they are, I will bring home with me.

On Monday, June 7. the Parliament <>f Fools 
convened for the last time this year. Although 
main- of its members were attending final sessions 
elsewhere, as will be shown by the results of said 
sessions, a great deal of business was transacted. 
A hill which will go .1 long way toward making 
\\ ellesley the t ollege ol our dreams was long under 
discussion. It provided: 

I. That a fountain be placed on the roof of our 
Administration Building to add to its natural 
beauty and to substitute artistically the use 
to which at present the hre hose is often put. 
That the construe tion of a lofty tower, com- 
manding a bird's-eye view of the entire 
campus in 1 In i our! before 1 he new building, 

be suggested to any prospective benef; rs 

of Wcllcsley. Such an edifice would serve 
a triple purpose. 
a. First, if it were connected b strong cables 
to the new building, it would prevent the 
impending danger of the latter's tobog- 
ganing pell-mell to the bottom of College 

Hall Hill. 

Second, ii would furnish another ren- 
dezvous for Juniors .a Ivy Planting. 
Thirdl; il would prevent the demolish- 
ing ol fi i" es and tri es, bj furnishing a 
secure perch for newspaper reporters and 

Thai during 1 he summer the whim of

walks widened for the fast approaching 
hoop-skirt-; and that the architects lor the 
new building be apprized of their coming,

ai cordingly. 
Squeeza Nil kel introduced a bill before the dun- 
• ial assembly, which if accepted will save the Col- 
lege thousands of dollars annually. The proi isions

I. That in I he future the College - 'e lor the

That in the interests of the "Redeem the

site. Such a garden would provide eggs 
for regulation breal fasts, and in a few ] eai 
prove such a great saving that its proceeds 
alone would pay for the proposed botanical

I. Students are re mended not to pack trunk 

Ice) s or tickets in I he extreme bottom of their 




trunks; it is also advisable to leave out suffi 
cient clothing for the homeward journey. 
These additional articles inconveniently en- 
hance the valuation which by the new Inter- 
state Commerce Law must be placed upon 
baggage. It is also advisable to secure money 
from the bank at least five minutes before 
train time as the B. and A. is a strong believer 
in suffrage and waits for no woman. 
Since most railway coaches are made only 
of frail steel, students are requested for the 
convenience of other passengers not to raise 
the roof on the way home. Open cars even 
from "Siegfried" to Wellesley are extremelj 
frigid at this season. 
In the interests of health, students who arc 
planning to carry more than sixteen hours 
work next winter are solicitously urged to 
make up only four courses during the sum- 
mer months. A great number of extra 
examinations in the fall is extremely in- 
jurious not only to the health but to the 
dispositions of the Faculty. 
The Iasl bill was put to a vote and unanimously 
accepted 1 1\ the Parliament. The other two win 
deemed to require the most serious consideration and 
were, therefore, laid on the table for the summer, 
There being no further business the meeting ad- 
jl nn lied.

(Continued from page 4) 

The Hague is such a charming city, so highly 
civilized, so tidy, so clean, so safe, so pleasant, so 
pretty. Man has done wonders in subduing nature 
and creating a world moulded to his own desires, 
a background for happy human living. In every 
city in Europe there are essentially the same con- 
ditions for people who are substantially the same. 
In reality Europe is to-day in normal times, practi- 
cally a single society. Yet largely artificial national 
frontiers are made to signify collective hatreds, and 
only a few miles away from here the fields are per- 
manently ruined, and the countryside is poisoned 
with corpses, and all the decent, thrifty little 
homes are smashed to dust, and the irreplaceable 
beauties of the cities are destroyed, and living, 
feeling men are killing one another on purpose. 

The soldiers in the hospitals say to the nurses, 
"We don't know why we are lighting. We can't 
do anything to help it. Can't you women do some- 
thing about it?" 

And the belligerent countries say, "We arc- 
caught in this war and we can't stop. Can't you 
neutral nations do something about it. J " 

This is the question that we are trying to answer. 
Can we help and how? Think, think for yourselves 
and fit yourselves to some purpose. Get others to 
think, too. 

And besides thinking we must feel genuinely 
and deeply, and then we shall not stop with think- 

(Continued from page 1) 

within a mile or two of the Alsace boundary. 

The service of Section Z, which is the military 
designation of the section attached to the army of 
the Vosges — the seventh — is wholly the fetching of. 
wounded from the evacuation hospitals in the re- 
captured province of Alsace to the Vail, head hospi- 
tal center in France, over a picturesque and dif- 
ficult pass. The American cars are parked with 
a twenty-five car section of French ambulances and 
under the authority of the French lieutenant com- 
manding them. The drivers are subject to the same 
discipline as that governing the soldiers, eat the 
regular army ration that is issued daily, and are 
billetted on the townspeople. 

Every morning at half-past six, three of our cars 
go over the pass and report for duty at the main 
evacuation hospital. This place is in a valley just 
behind the high summits commanding the valley 
of the Upper Rhine, where the fiercest fighting in 
the East has taken place and is still going on. The 
sound of artillery fighting echoes almost contin- 
uously from the guns on Hartmann Sisllerkopf, for 
which, as the papers have daily chronicled, the con- 
test is unremitting — the French holding and the 
Germans attacking. The majority of our wounded 
come from this battle front. They are brought down 
on man and mule-back, the journey often taking a 
whole day. At the entrenched line, of course, they 
receive first-aid care and the attention of the bat- 
talion surgeons, but it is this early stage of their 
' way to convalescence and the resulting uselessness 
or return to the front that is the most painful. 


The Antiseptic Powder to 
Shake Into Your Shoes 

Over 100,000 packages are being used by 
the German and Allied troops at the front. 
It rests the feet, prevents friction, blis- 
ters, Corns and Buuious and makes walk- 
ing or standing easy. Don't go to the 
California Expositions without a sup- 
ply of Allen's Foot— Ease. It gives instant 
relief to tired, aching feet and prevents 
swollen, hot feet. Sold everywhere, 25c. 
Don't accept any substitute.

The cars are a 11 capable of carrying three stretcher- 
cases and one seated beside the driver, or four seated, 
their capacity being about half that of the French 
ambulances. But the unvarying experience has 
been that the unique spring suspension and light 
body construction make our cars by far the most 
comfortable for the wounded of all tin- types in 

In the month of duty here so far accomplished, 
the section has carried almost a thousand wounded 
of whom the Wellesley ambulance has carried about 
one hundred and fifty-five, mostrj chasseurs alpins. 
the merry-hearted fierce lighters from the Midi. 

The daily routine includes an afternoon servici 
of three cars to the same hospital. Alter a particu- 
larly vigorous action — especially on the offensive — 
our whole section may be rolling back and forth oxer 
the pass through the night. Usually this work is 
from another evacuation hospital to the north, 
established in a big German cotton-mill, where the 
wounded straggle in all night and wail their turns 
with the busy brown-bloused surgeons — till in one 
big storeroom lighted l>> acetylene tiarcs. 

The donors of the ambulance— if they needed 
further proof — would be quite satisfied of the high 
value of their gifts if they could once witness the 
unfailing courage and real gaiety under torture of 
these magnificent French soldiers. Every <>ne of 
them has thought the question out for himself, and 
everj one of them is sure that he. personally, is 
serving the cause of justice in Si of civiliza- 
tion against barbarism. And tin- reasoning has 

been based on assumed or hypothetical premises, I nit 
on the grimmest of horrible facts. 

And when they are set down at the end of their 
hour in the American ambulances almost without 
exception thej manage a cheerful expression ol 
gratitude, the accumulation of which must mean 
much to you, the giver of the cars.

In Memoriam. 
We "I the Class of 'So knew Dora (lining our 
four College years, hut, though feeling very old at 
twenty-one or twenty-two, we were incapable ol 
appreciating her then, as we can now, after thirty- 
five years. As we look back now, it seems quite 
natural that, after three or four years' leaching in 
local schools, she should go into such a work as 
that ol the Hampton Institute for the training of 
Negro and Indian young men and women for 
leadership ol their people. Here she gave nineteen 
years ol whole-hearted, devoted and able service. 
She built a 1 ni tage on the school-grounds, where she 

and her mother made their home a center of gracious 
hospitality and helpful influence. The classmate 

whose privilege it was , work with hei and know 
her intimately during four of 1 hese j ears al I [amp- 
ton, owes much lo her loving friendship, anil came 
to honor and almost reverence her for her beautiful 
( hristian character and her rare power as a teacher 
and administrator, [t is hard to think of Hampton 
without her, and only such a call as came to her 
in too,? could have drawn her away from that 
work-: the call to preside over I he home of Dr. 
Beach, whom she had long known as pastor and 
friend. Those who were present at our 1905 re- 
union, remember Dr. and Mrs. Beai h is mil- .if the 
three bridal couples of whom we were so proud on 
that occasion. (If her life since then, her sisU-r. 
Mrs. Mice Freeman Firman, says in a note to the 
class: "She has lived a remarkable life in Bangor, 
and I am so proud of her. The impressions she has 
left here, in the seminar; church, club and home 

life are so deep and so liig." The ( lass of 'sin loved 
her. and is proud of her too.
